Event Cancellation

Event Cancellation Policy

Aquathon is proposed to be held, unless it is deemed to unsafe by the event organisers and in strict consultation with local authorities. The event is planned to proceed under most conditions as per wind, rain and subject to strict risk protocols. As per the event waiver certain conditions may make cancellation the only option.

As a single day event Aquathon takes many months of planning and cannot be swapped to another day at the last minute.

If conditions pose a high risk to participant safety, the event may be cancelled at the last minute. This is typically decided on event morning and communicated on social media channels. If conditions require cancellation on event morning, there will be no re-run of the event and all entry fees are forfeited for that year.

This is to cover the extensive pre-paid event approvals, services and staffing costs, along with donations to volunteer groups, that are not refundable to the event.
